Jessica Mosbaugh grew up in Indiana and got her first horse at age 8. She rode with trainers including Lynn Palm, Sally Swift, George Morris, Clark Bradley, and others. Her quarter horse Ben and she competed in nearly every AQHA class from the 10 and under division through the Amateur division.

From 1988 to 1991 Jessica attended William Woods College in Missouri and began training and coaching professionally. Gayle Lampe introduced her to the world of saddleseat and American Saddlebreds and Kenny Burgdorfer worked on her jumping skills. She worked at a local boarding barn starting over 100 colts in 3 years. She rode with Jon Barry, Gil Galyean, Jamie Bissell, and Richard Shrake and learned what she could from each.

In 2001 Jessica Mosbaugh met Ray Hunt. She spent the next 7 years trying to soak up as much as she could. Through Ray she was introduced to Eric Thomas and experienced the thrill of riding reiners and cow horses. Jessica and her clients continued to compete in multiple events.

In 2016 Jessica observed a Working Equitation clinic with Carlos Carneiros. Working Equitation combines her 2 loves:  obstacles and western dressage. She is impressed by the level of lightness, discipline, partnership and horsemanship in this sport. She has been fortunate now to ride with many talented Working Equitation trainers including Carlos Carneiros, Miguel Undabarrena, Andre Ganc, José Manuel Correia Lopes, Polly Limond, and Rebecca Algar and she looks forward to moving up the levels.

In 2020 Jessica Mosbaugh began giving clinics and helped bring Working Equitation to Northern California by starting the Summer Fun Working Equitation Show Series. She is also a USAWE Technical Delegate and Show Manager. Jessica’s open invitation to all: “Come ride with us!”
